Christiane Offenbar and Fabio Keiner- Unsung Songs [treetrunk 218]
unsung songs is the product of a casual collaboration between german jazz-singer christiane offenbar and austrian sound sound mangler fabio keiner.
Run time 44:11
spontaneous vocal improvisations, chanting and whispers, sung directly by christiane into the recording device of her pc; reworking, stretching and remixing of this rather raw and direct material by fabio.
the finished compilation of tracks surprised even the creator duo with its abstract mystic quality... invoking fictional sceneries of a slow butoh dance ritual (unsung song 1-3) or the deep orgastic moaning/screaming/whispering of surabaya (inspiration derived from a famous song/poem by bert brecht).
many thanks and deep regards also to the portuguese photographer isis2x2, who gave us permission to use a photo of her for album cover artwork.-- fabio keiner, 2012
